  • Patent number: 9464324
    Abstract: Methods are disclosed for determining the prognosis of a subject with an adenocarcinoma in an organ, such as the lung. The methods can include quantitating expression of a plurality of cytokines of interest, such as IL-1a, IL-1b, IL-2, IL-8, IL-10, IL-12, IL-15, IFN-? and TNF-a in the adenocarcinoma and in non-cancerous tissue in the organ. Altered expression of IL-1a, IL-1b, IL-2, IL-8, IL-10, IL-12, IL-15, IFN-? and TNF-a in the adenocarcinoma as compared to a control and in non-cancerous tissue in the organ as compared to a control determines the prognosis for the subject. Methods for determining if a therapeutic agent is effective as an anti-cancer agent are also disclosed.
